we don't have to.
"The message of Easter is not that Jesus is alive, it is so much more. The message of Easter is that Jesus has risen!"
"May we declare ourselves to be more fully disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, not in word only and not in the flush of comfortable times, but in deed and in courage and in faith. May we stand by Jesus Christ at all times and in all things, and in all places that we may be in, even until death, for surely that is how He stood by us when it was unto death and when He had to stand entirely and utterly alone."
Happy Easter everyone!
I think it's so important that we remember the meaning of the holiday.
If you can't do it on Christmas, at least do it on Easter. Because the Atonement is everything to you. At least it should be.
It's the reason we are saved.
The reason we will live again.
The reason families are forever...
The reason we can have joy.
The reason you are never alone.
You can do all that you can - and be all that you are - because of the Atonement.
And remember that because Jesus walked such a long path alone, we don't have to.
He cries with you.
He rejoices with you.
He walks with you always.
And don't you forget it.
(and to finish, this quote just intrigues me...!!)
"According to the laws of legal evidence used in courts of law, there is more evidence for the historical fact of the resurrection of Jesus Christ than for just about any other event in history."
-Harvard Law Professor Dr. Simon Greenleaf
Have a lovely day and don't forget why we celebrate Easter!
